Mr. Fullard is one of the most experienced minority business and construction industry specialists in the mid-Atlantic Region. He began his career as a union ironworker in 1984. By age 30, he had parlayed his ten years of ironwork experience into an entrepreneurial venture, establishing the first African-American-owned steel erection company in the Greater Philadelphia area.
During the years 2000-2001, Fullard was instrumental in convening minority business leaders to formulate a strategic plan for minority inclusion in the city of Philadelphia's construction boom. In 2002, he joined forces with A. Bruce Crawley, chairman of the African-American Chamber of Commerce, and accepted the responsibility of Director of Economic Development for the Chamber, where he was responsible for the development of contract opportunities for the full range of African-American Chamber member-businesses. Subsequently, the Chamber submitted a series of proposals to the city of Philadelphia to help minority contractors become more competitive within their industry sectors. The program, which provided working and start-up capital, credit repair, bonding, managerial skills and technical support, was named the Emerging Contractors Program and was operated out of headquarters offices in North Central Philadelphia.
In 2003, Fullard went on to establish a special outreach program with the School District of Philadelphia to increase broad-based minority procurement and capital improvement opportunities.
Mr. Fullard is a former member of the Philadelphia Phillies Minority Business Oversight Committee, the ACE Insurance Minority Business Oversight Committee, the Comcast Building Minority Business Oversight Committee, and the Economic Inclusion Advocacy Committee at the University of Pennsylvania.
